AGRICULTURAL REPORT. ThE harvest commenced in the lower districts about the 18th of August, but reaping went slowly forward till the 24th, by reason of frequent showers and heavy dews, attended with mist, which seldom cleared up till toward the middle of the day. From the 24th there was little interruption to the operations of harvest, and a considerable breadth of Wheat fields was clear by the end of August. In the higber districts, little was cut down till the commencement of the present month, and two-thirds of the Corn still remain standing. Though the temperature has been unusually mild, the ripening process goes forward slowly ; and the inequality of the braird in the early parts of summer is conspicuous, by the crop ripening unevenly. In the Carse of Gowrie, and Vale of Strathearn, where the Wheat and Oats are all cut down, and for the most part secured in the barn-yard, a few solitary patches of late green Barley are still to be seen standing. In the higher parts of Fife, and in some of the Highland glens, Oats still look green, mixed with some early plants, that are totally ripe. As hitherto, there has been no hoar frost. The ears have, in general, filled well. Wheat did not this season occupy the usual breadth, but the quantity is superior, and the produce will balance the deficiency of breadth ; the major part of that valuable species of grain is now secured in good condition. Barley carries a long, well-filled ear, and though mixed with greens, promises a full return. Oats are short and thin, but remarkably well furnished. Beans and Pease are well podded. Potatoes promise a fair return, and Turnips will be more weighty than usual. Upon the whole, it may be stated with fairness, that the crop, in general, is rather above than below an ordinary average.

The favourable appearance of the crop has already produced a fall in price in the Corn Market. Wheat has come down in price of late, and Oats, since the opening of the Ports for that article, are in little demand. Old Wheat only brings from 23s. to 25s., new Wheat a shilling or two less. Oats bring from 173. to 20s. In Barley there is little doing. The price of Cattle are stationary, and Horses meet with rather brisker sales than at the summer markets.
